Mela Lee and Susan Silo do a fantastic job at capturing her evil side. Making her sound intimidating and still feminine. Bobby Holliday did a wonderful job with Emma by making her sound alluring, wise and playful. Erica Schroeder also did a very good job with Emma, sounding mature and giving her a little attitude. Kari Wahlgren did outstanding with Emma's sarcastic, mischievous and feisty persona, and still sounding sexy and caring. Kari's english accent is the cherry on top of her performance.

Update: Ali's voice is not bad, but she wouldn't be my first choice; her voice sounds a little throaty sometimes, but the sort of hush-ness in her voice adds mystery to that of Emma Frost.

Overall, all these actresses portrayed Emma Frost WONDERFULLY, but my favorite would have to be Kari. With Bobby being 2nd, Erica being 3rd, Ali being 4th, Susan being 5th and Mela being 6th.

 2 Shout Outs! [?]
1-: Kari Wahlgren: Pitch perfect, the accent is perfect and she got Emma's personality down to a tee.
2-:Bobby Holiday: Captured Emma's wise and sexy side well.
3-:Erica Schroeder: Made Emma sound cold and heartless, but come on, that's one of the reasons she's known as the White Queen. :D
4-:Lara Gilchrist: Fairly enjoyable and easy on the ears, but it's a bit of a step down from Erica, as Lara sounds a tad bit too young for Emma IMO.
5-:Ali Hillis: She made Emma sound lovely, and it's one of the most likeable depictions of the character, but Ali was a little too soft here.
6-: Susan Silo and Mela Lee: So hammy they could make a triple Bacon deluxe burger, but their corny and over the top acting has some level of enjoyment for me.
7-: Grey DeLisle: Look, I know you were reduced to SHSO of all things, but couldn't you have just used your Psylocke voice Grey?

Give Bobby an accent and she's perfect. I'm voting for her, but Kahri Wahlgren is very close.

Kari and Ali are the only performances I'm familiar with. I thought they both did an excellent job, but I'm gonna go with Kari as the superior (although I prefer Emma's characterisation in the anime to what I've seen of her anywhere else).

Has to be Wahlgren. Wahlgren without a doubt.

I'd hate to say it but Grey is the weakest, at least with the others there's something interesting or rememberable but Grey is just generic

Susan Silo - Not that good, but OK. A little too hokey.
Mela Lee - Too raspy.
Bobby Holiday - Pretty good.
Kari Wahlgren - Perfect.
Erica Schroeder - Pretty good as well.
Ali Hillis - Kinda miss the accent, but pretty good.
Grey DeLisle - The material is a bit damning, but if she was given better material, and if she used a accent, she might of been just as good as Kari.
Lara Gilchrist - OK

It isn't 100% known if Emma actually has a British accent. Since Kari is the only one to explore this and do a brilliant job, I have to hand it to her.
said at 12:54 PM on Thu Apr 11 2013
@ChloeKitten It's think it's been stated before that she sports a fake british accent.

@GothamRed Most likely; in the comics, she's from Boston.
said at 9:00 PM on Mon Aug 26 2013
@Tyler Reznik Yup, she is

I love Ali's voice in general, and she definitely did a great job on Emma

They're all good in different ways but I'd have to go with Kari Wahlgren.
said at 10:45 AM on Wed Jun 27 2012
That's not Mela! I recognize the original quality from the arcade game.
said at 11:22 AM on Fri Jul 27 2012
@SmartyBoyboy They redubbed all the dialogue for the game's re-release (with only two VAs: Kyle Hebert and Mela Lee), but kept in the original Engrish-ridden script for the camp value.

I'm gonna go with Kari Wahlgren for Emma, though Bobby Holliday, Erica Schroeder, and Ali Hillis are good, too.

What I'm confused she wasn't in the 1992 series I swear she was

@pete I was right. I'll add that to the forums.

I love how the new English version for the 1992 X-Men game keep the really bad script of the old one! XD I guess Kari would be my pic, but none of them are bad at all.

I'm going with Kari. Ali sounds fantastic as Emma, she sounds so much like Jennifer Hale sometimes though. Erica's was ok, but her accent kept going in and out during the whole series.

Wow, Ali sounds just like Lightning here. I'd say she comes in first, Erica second, and Kari third.
